The wait is definitely over, and not just over, but we’ve also got a very big game to start with.

Actually sense, we’ve got 2, Paris Saint-Germain hosting Real Madrid and Manchester City playing away to Sporting CP.

However, we can bet 99% of us will be watching the game between Les Parisiens and Los Blancos.

You just don’t want to miss a minute of this game.

Smiles looks like we are already being carried away by the hype of the game.

UCL (PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN):

UCL Home Dominance: Certainly the best fact in favor of Mauricio Pochettino’s men

Placed in a difficult group alongside Rasenballsport Leipzig and Manchester City, one would expect PSG to drop some points.

Sure enough, they did drop those points.

In short, they dropped a whopping 7.

However, of the 7 points they dropped, none was at home.

They looked pretty formidable playing at home, scoring 9 goals and conceding just 3.

No doubt, Mauricio Pochettino’s men will be going into this game with some huge confidence.

Both Teams’ Current Form: Another fact that tilts this game.in favor of Les Parisiens.

Aside from their Coupe de France loss to Nice, PSG have been in good winning shape in their last 5 games.

They’ve won 4 out of those 5, compared to Real who have only managed 2 wins, 2 draws, 1 loss in as many games.

Another important stat in favor of Mauricio Pochettino’s men, isn’t it?

Let’s now shift our attention to Carlo Ancelotti’s men

UCL (REAL MADRID):

Impressive UCL Away Record: You think Les Parisiens have an excellent home record this season? Wait till you see Los Blancos’ away performance.

Although Real dropped points at home this season which includes a shocking loss to FC Sheriff, they’ve been phenomenal playing away from home.

They claimed all 9 points, scoring 9 goals and conceding none in the process.

Pretty amazing isn’t it?

No doubt, Mauricio Pochettino and his men will have something to worry about when both teams meet.

Impressive Head To Head: Another fact in favor of Carlo Ancelotti’s men.

No doubt, Les Parisiens have been the better side in the last 2 meetings between both sides.

However, 2 wins, 1 draw, and 1 loss in the last 4 UCL meetings in favor of Los Blancos say a lot.

Let’s also state it clearly that both wins came at the knockout stage of the competition.

You can bet this fact will provide some huge motivation for Carlos Ancelotti’s men as well.

CONCLUSION:

Hmm, here’s one of those games where the reward of enjoying the game seems way better than picking sides.

I bet we can’t wait to see Lionel Messi, Neymar, Madrid-bound Kylian Mbappe, Vincius Junior, Karim Benzema, etc dazzle us with some amazing displays.

Really, I will be so disappointed if this game doesn’t live up to its hype.
